President Trump meant it when he said that the Deep State’s targeting of conservative Americans will indeed go after everybody, from the former president himself to everyday patriots.
In the most egregious bastardization of justice we’ve seen yet in the aftermath of the January 6th protests, Enrique Tarrio – a half-black and half-Cuban American, and the former leader of the Proud Boys – received the harshest sentence yet in any January 6 trial: A staggering 22 years in prison, even though Tarrio was not even present in D.C. that day. The only “crime” he ever committed was tearing down and burning a Black Lives Matter banner before January 6th.
The message is clear: Deep State prosecutors and their corrupt judges will give patriotic Americans decades in prison for simply standing up to tyranny, exercising their God-given right to protest and assembly. Meanwhile, actual terrorists such as BLM and Antifa are still allowed to roam free to this day. The inmates are running the asylum, and we are fast running out of time to make things right before it is too late for America.

Enrique Tarrio, known for his former role as chairman of the Proud Boys, has been sentenced to 22 years in prison over charges of seditious conspiracy in connection to the riot at the US Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. This is now the longest sentence handed down to any January 6 defendant.
Prosecutors had sought to have Tarrio sentenced to 33 years in federal prison. Tarrio’s co-defendants Zachary Rehl, Joe Biggs, and Ethan Nordean, all of whom were Proud Boys affiliates, all received anywhere between 15-18 years in prison.
Tarrio was not present at the US Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. As was noted by American journalist Julie Kelly, he had been detained the day prior after an alleged burning of a BLM banner took place in December 2020.
Thus far, around 1,100 individuals have been charged over alleged crimes related to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, and over 300 have been sentenced to serve time behind bars. New arrests are still ongoing, over two years after that fateful day.
The sentence Tarrio received is the longest related to Jan. 6 that has been doled out thus far. Prosecutors on the case argued in favor of Tarrio receiving a terrorism sentencing enhancement, to which the judge agreed. The judge had done the same to Tarrio’s co-defendants.
Tarrio’s lawyer, Sabino Jauregui, pointed out that Tarrio “comes from a country where there are no rights,” and said that “He was trying to protect this country, as misguided as he was.”
“I am not a political zealot,” Tarrio reportedly said during the trial. “When I get back home, I want nothing to do with politics, groups, activism or rallies.”
